When attempting to load a zone file this error can occur: bad owner name (check-names)
zone loading from master file failed: bad owner name (check-names)
zone not loaded due to errors.


BIND does not permit underscores "_" unless you specificy the whole domain name.


Do not use the suffix supplied with $ORIGIN, use instead of blah in this example.

This is probably a bug, underscores are officially allowed although not rarely used excluding Microsoft AD environments.
